Music programs offered at LAAPA include private lessons, semi-private lessons, toddler classes, ensembles, and summer camps.

Music Tuition / Fees - all Campuses

Students ages 5-up may choose from 30, 45, or 60 minute weekly private lessons. The 30 minute weekly session is the most appropriate choice for most beginning students. Intermediate and advanced students may consider (but are not limited to) the longer options. Older beginners with a high level of interest and time to invest may also opt for a 45 or 60 minute weekly lesson. Students between ages 4-5 are invited to begin private lessons in a weekly 15 minute format.

Tuition is assessed on the first of each month. Students who begin lessons or classes in the middle of the month will be pro-rated for the number of lessons they will have in that month.
